I've changed the name of this thread omitting the word 'European'
This is true my form is something odd,
But blaming me is blaming God;
Could I create myself anew
I would not fail in pleasing you.

Since when have Nepal, Fiji and Cambodia been in Europe?


Well, wouldn't you agree that expanding the discussion to Former European Presidents And Prime Minister's would make the thread more informative and interesting? I really think so. It would give readers more options to post about and besides, it's better to have a thread which covers 'a whole category' then a thread which would only cover 1\3 of the category. This way, it's basically limiting a subject to one thread instead of four threads. You know what I mean?


Okey, but before I started the post I went online too check out all the chosen leaders of Europe who are 90+.
If someone else has 90+ suggestions outside Europe please place them here.


Maybe we should merge the thread with the Political Fraility thread, which serves much the same purpose.

Zeljko Sturanovic - Former Prime Minister of Montegreno - Has lung cancer (Recently resigned)
Girija Prasad Koirala - Prime Minister of Nepal (In failing health)
Wojciech Jaruzelski - Former president of Poland - Recently (hospitalized) and in failing health
Ratu Iloilo - President of Fiji - My impression is his good health is no doubt overly exaggerated.
King Sihanouk - Former King of Cambodia - 2009's Suharto?


Since when have Nepal, Fiji and Cambodia been in Europe?

Someone should really start a separate thread for monarchs/politicians of Nepal, Cambodia and Fiji and, of course, the other countries in their region.

I am not agreeing with this merge.
I started this post because the politics on this site are always very UK/USA oriented.
When there is a lot of attention to somewhat lesser important English or American politicians, a lot of important chosen leaders of other contry's are forgotten.
Take Francis Pym for instance he was very important for the UK, but when I saw on this site he was dead I started looking on all the European stations that I can get on my television and only the BBC had news about him and/or his dead.
That's why I think the site should only be foccused on Monarchs, Presidents and Prime Ministers and it should forget (unless they have a great reason) all the ministers, senators or other politicians under them.

These are just my thoughts.

My thoughts:

You're a topic-whoring young twat.

Your grasp of English is abysmal, even for a Dutchie (cf the great Magere Hein).

Please calm down and respect the forum - this topic was merged for a good reason.

Why can't we leave Vaagy's thread as he wants it? He sounds like a reasonable poster and I think his English is just fine.

I agree with deadsox.

TAFKAG, you seem always ready to call other people bad names. Maybe when you have some respect yourself in this forum, then you can start being abusing (if approbriate, not like this time) other people? Maybe new members should be a bit more carfeul as we all know that arguing on internet is stupid and a waste of time.

I think there are already so many threads, one more (for Vaagheid's odiginal purpose) is not too much. So far, every single of his posts are on-topic (I think).

Easy folks. We've also got famous Belgians. How European is that? Plenty scope for your Euro-politicos here. Good list Vaagheid by the way. We all gotta merge sometime.

What about that guy who used to say "Nil points!" on Jeux Sans Frontieres? Was it Guido Pancaldi? He was pretty important, must be getting on a bit. Should he be on the list?

I welcome this debate. It's about time this site began to take The European Commission a bit more seriously.

Wow, what strange things you do in Holland. Searching obscure yet living ex-heads of state. Are there no other recreational activities in Holland? :P

I thought I might give it a go too, see if it really is a fantastic buzz. Here's a sniffter of what I came up with:

Gerard Batliner and Alfred Hilbe are both 80 this year and former Regierungschef of Liechtenstein.

Joan Martí Alanis another soon to be octagenarian and former Bishop of Urgell, thereby former co-Prince of Andorra. (Although does he come under DDT's(?) jurisdiction, being a man of the cloth?)

Luigi Lonfernini, albeit a spritely 69 years old, was the Captain Regent of San Marino. Although as their head of government is voted in every 6 months there could be many more flooding the market.

I drew a blank on Transdniester, I thought it was going to be my "one big hit" however the comedown was all too sudden; they have had only the one ruler and they're not internationally recognised.

However, moving on to the smaller European countries we do have Valéry Marie René Giscard d'Estaing who was President of a little known republic, France. Hence it might be difficult forseeing that "qualified UK obit".

Most of the time we have. Only not in bad weather (today Holland had through bad weather his longest traffic line up ever).


Jools had the great Brummie band Traffic on his line up despite half of them being dead? That's impressive.

Not long ago I discovered while surfing through the internet that the first president of Malta (1974 – 1976) is still alive. Sir Anthony Mamo is 99 years old:


I wouldn't rush to put Mamo on any list by the looks of this report:-
http://www.timesofma...-tells-students

One - he's still out & about
Two - apart from obvious fraility - he looks healthy enough
Three - according to the report, he still is quite a busy man.




Knowing my previous recommendations, he'll be dead by the end of the week.....

Close, but no cigar. Dead.

Mamo, ex-leader of Malta
Was clearly beginning to falter,
He had his own thread
Started up by Veghead,
Which a mod then decided to alter.
